A fundamental knowledge of critical care medicine is essential to the practice of every discipline within medicine. The successful internist must achieve competence in the essential skills of stabilizing and intervening in the care of critically ill patients for the first 24 hours until a medical intensive care specialist assumes care. The Northeast Georgia (MICU) rotation will provide residents with a rigorous experience in the assessment and care of the critically ill medical patient. Northeast Georgia provides a unique environment of diverse pathophysiology as well as patients from diverse communities, socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Residents will manage patients in a tertiary care ICU setting as part of a multidisciplinary team, under the direct supervision of attendings with expertise in critical care medicine.

Unique to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, we have 2 MICU unique practice environments, Gainesville and Braselton. PGY 2 residents will rotate at the Gainesville Campus. PGY 2 residents will have the opportunity for teaching and supervising the intern as well as learning to become proficient in leading daily academic multidisciplinary rounds. The skill to be able to lead a multidisciplinary team is a skill that resident must be skilled in upon completion of 7 MICU.
